Don’t Throw Away Your Markers

“This is just a quick and simple tip for artists who use markers to color their work. Refilling your own markers can save you money, and it’s easy to do.”

how does this not have more notes!

i… i think i can actually afford to use these, then.

reblog for my artist friends!

I’m glad this came back around because I forgot to add the first time that ANYTHING LIQUID AND CLEAR WITH A HIGH ENOUGH ALCOHOL CONTENT WORKS FOR THIS so we’re talking your facial cleanser, screen cleaner, vodka, perfume, you name it. I used to have a cheap ass bottle of this facial cleanser stuff that didn’t smell of much and it worked like a charm for renewing alcohol markers like copics. Things like that are also probably cheaper or easier to get than high grade raw alcohol especially if you’re not doing professional works and just drawing for fun.

I can’t be shaken anymore, by anyone. I’ve got to that point in my life that if you’re not a good person, and you can’t make me feel good with love and life, then fuck off, basically.

THIS TURNED OUT REALLY LONG SORRY NOT SORRY

ENJOY USING YOUR SCROLL BUTTON

But here it is! A tutorial on how to make pony ears, like the ones I used for the costumes I wore to Bronycon.

They’re really easy to make! These were the first thing I ever sewed, so anyone who has a basic knowledge of how a sewing machine works should be able to figure them out.

I don’t have an actual pattern because the size is all up to you! The ones I made for the tutorial turned out pretty small, so I’d suggest doing something that takes up maybe half a piece of computer paper, at least.

I hope this helps! I’ll be making a yarn tail tutorial soon.

All in all, I’d say it cost me less than $5 to make a single pair of pony ears using my method. AWWWWW YIIIIIIIIIIIII cheap cosplay.

This look was originally all over Reddit and Pinterest, so I definitely needed to try it. Although, I of course needed to add my own flare to it, by adding some fawn-style ears and accessories.

This is the same look I posted to my Reddit account: /u/rumpus_ruffled

I said I’d write up a tutorial on how to make these wings. It’ll be terrible So, here goes. XD
Have one or two friends to help you out. It’s easier with more hands.Materials:
Thin poster board. (For small wings you will need 3 pieces. For wings like this you will need 6)
Opal cellophane. (two rolls to be safe)
Adhesive glue.
Scissors.
Wire cutters.
Exacto knife. (I recommended using this for cutting out the poster board)
Hot glue gun.
3 Hanger wires (it’s super sturdy)
Pencil, and eraser.
Iron.
GLITTER!!!!!!!!!
Step one:
Find a reference photo! These wings are meant for a Periwinkle cosplay but since her and Tinkerbell have the same wings we used Tink as a reference.
Step Two:
Since we made our wings super large we had to glue two pieces of poster board together. This is why I said 6 pieces for large wings. Reason why is because of their size just one piece would make it droop. So before drawing the design on you spray one piece with adhesive and put the other piece on top of it. Making it as even as possible.
If you’re making smaller wings just go to step three!
Step Three:
Draw your design on the poster board. We drew ours on from corner to corner (diagonally) If you want smaller wings I recommend drawing it from corner to the the middle of the board.
Step four:
This is the most tedious of all the steps to making wings. Take your exact o knife and start cutting. You cut around the design but make sure to cut half an inch away from the line. You can go back later to make it thinner if you want. Using one poster board will take less time then two since it isn’t as thick.
Make sure there is something underneath the board so you don’t damage your floor.
Step Five: (not necessary but who says no to glitter)
We’re obsessed with glitter. So naturally we coated both sides of the design with white glitter. We used adhesive for this as well.
Step Six: (Smaller wings don’t need this but if you want to add it then go ahead!)
Take your wire hanger and bend it out so it’s the same shape of the wing that will be the closest to your back. Glue the wire down about 7 inches down from the tip of the wing. Most of the support is needed in the middle, and bottom of the wing.
Let some of the wire hang out of the bottom about four inches so you can connect the harness.
Step Seven
Roll out the cellophane to go over the wings. One piece for each side. Spray adhesive to the wing first and then gently place the cellophane over it. I recommend having someone help you with this part because adhesive is a pain when something goes wrong.
Do this for both the big wing, and the smaller one. Make sure the cellophane is over the wing evenly. Pat out any bubbles it may have.
Step Eight:
When both sides have cellophane on it take your iron and make sure it’s on a low setting. You don’t want it to burn or melt the cellophane. Gently go over the wing, and even it out as much as possible. There will be some bubbles, and such but think of it being more realistic.
Step Nine:
Cut off any excessive cellophane but leave some near the veins and by the wire. If it’s to short the cellophane will come apart. We left little less then half an inch.
Step Nine:
Take the adhesive to glue the little wing to the bigger one. You want to make sure you glue it on the inside.
Step Ten:
Use another wire hanger and bend it into a rectangle. Wire hanger is tough to bend so you’re going to have to use your inner strength. Cut off any excess wire with a wire cutter. Cover it with electrical tape so it becomes sturdier.
 Step Eleven:
Line up the wing wire with the harness wire at the spot where it’s needed. Take the wing and connect it to the harness. Using electrical tape to keep the two of them together. Cut off an excess wire so it doesn’t dig into the wearers back.
Alas you have fairy wings!! I hope this helps a bit T-T Have fun!
Tip: You may have to cut a slit in the back of your outfit for the wings to slip into. Wearing a bra helps because it goes underneath it.
